I was recently reading the January/February 2021 issue of “Science & Children” a publication of the National Science Teaching Association. In this issue, I read an article written by Ryan S. Nixon, Shannon L. Navy, Sarah Barnett, Marissa Johnson, and Delaney Larson. Their article was entitled “Pinning and Planning: Five Tips for Using Pinterest to Teach Science.”
Pinterest is an online resource that teachers seem to enjoy and find useful. Pinterest is a social media website where individuals can bookmark content found elsewhere on the internet in one convenient place. Nixon and his students spent several months closely analyzing 1600 pins and their associated websites for teaching the topics of force/motion and adaptations. Their research pointed out the benefits and weaknesses of Pinterest as a teaching resource.
